    The Shrewsbury Arms has been rescued by Kingstone Community Society . All funded and run by the the society and volunteers. A truly fantastic achievement in the modern day

    The first open night run by volunteers was Friday 31st May. The pub is open again this Friday 7th June.
    Looking for management to take tenancy in the Autumn. As this is owned by The Society the intent is for the Management Team to grow the business without being tied to a brewery

    I last went there about twelve years ago, when the rather nice restaurant was in operation.

    I was persuaded to give a "rather outgoing" friend a lift there - locals may still remember the night.

    I might be able to go back now...

    Shrewsbury Arms now serving food and doing very well by all accounts. The Tenants are previously of the Red Lion Newborough which had a great reputation.
    Reviews are looking good on Trip Advisor
